I just got the game Madden 25 a few weeks ago because I make it some what of a point to get the newer Madden every year to see what exactly they change or if at all they change anything from year to year. Plus I have some kind of infatuation with keeping up with society in the gaming area. Anyway, the main thing that's new with Madden 25 (In my opinion) is they've gone a step beyond letting you coach the team by creating a coach, but now they have an Owner mode where they let you either pick an owner or create one and even let you pick what kind of owner you want to be and which team you want to own. I like to play every mode in Madden because that way I feel like I get my money's worth. So I try owner's mode and of course I choose to own the St. Louis Rams. In the first year of owning the Rams, I have to relocate the Rams because I'm guessing in the game the negotiations broke down. I go through the cities of which one I will choose to move the Rams and some of the expected locations come up like Dublin, Brooklyn and even multiple others, but one that I didn't expect to pop up is Oklahoma. From a money and market stand point, Oklahoma doesn't seem like the Ideal place to move a team because at best your going to get a small amount of money compared to a play like Brooklyn, but could Oklahoma City be the best place for the Rams, outside of St. Louis of course, to place the Rams? I will tell you why it could be the perfect place..
Let me start off by saying that I do hope that the Rams stay in St. Louis and this post is just merely me humoring myself because I do in fact know that the Rams moving to Oklahoma City is far fetched, but hey, I'm bored.
The first thing that pops to mind when I think of a good place to move the Rams is a good city that will support them through think and thin, When it comes to some of these places like California, they expect a winner and can be kind of harsh when their favorite team is performing well which is expected from fans, but what you have with Oklahoma is patience and a good fan base as well. You might ask me, how do you know this to be true RG31, and I'll tell you. When the Oklahoma City Thunder moved to Oklahoma, many forget that they weren't all that great and were even lousy for a bit there at the beginning, but the fans still came out and supported them no matter what and in short time the team started to pay the fans back with winning season and even a Finals appearance. Now, of course I can't promise that for the Rams because I can't predict the future, but what I can guarantee is this team would have the full support of the city and state because Oklahoma seems to be hungry for some attention on the national level. We also believe, as a state, that we are ready for the big time, as seen from the push to get the Supersonics to come here a few years back. Along with that patience comes attendance, even though the Thunder weren't very good when they first got to Oklahoma, fan still came out to support in large numbers. Now, as we speak, the Chesapeake Energy Arena is known as one of the toughest places to play, not just because of the Thunder's success, but because the fans can get quite loud. Another way that I know the Rams would fit in here in Oklahoma is because Football a religion here. There are a few things that people here take to heart and that's their religion and football. On a Sunday, there are only two things that most are doing on that day and that's going to church or watching football.
The other reason why I think that moving to Oklahoma would be a great choice is because of marketing. Here, you don't have to compete with other teams in the same state for fans or whatever. The only other team that would be here is the Thunder and that doesn't stop anyone from buying their merchandise. Put in the fact that St. Louis is only 7 hours from Oklahoma City and that's way close that California or Brooklyn. But, let me be honest, this all isn't for the good of the team. I have another motive for wanting the Rams to move here and it's for the simple fact that I hate the Cowboys. You might ask me what does that have to do with the Rams moving and that's very simple, this state happens to be very loyal to their teams. I figure, if the Rams move here, then I can stop watching and hearing about the Cowboys for most of the season at least. I also figure, the only reason why most people here cheer for them is because their the closest to Oklahoma. Yea, yea, yea, I'm selfish, nice to meet you.
Once again, I know this is a far fetched dream, but a man can dream, can he not? So, Rams to Oklahoma.... tell a friend..
